PALM BEACH, Fla. - Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
and the Jimmy Fund’s 19th annual Discovery Ball was held Saturday, February 20, at The Breakers. The enchanting black-tie evening brought together civic, business, and philanthropic leaders with Dana-Farber physicians and scientists in support of the Institute’s lifesaving work.  Sheila, Peter, and Leon Palandjian were chairs of the evening, Michele and Howard Kessler were honorary chairs, and Patrick Park was vice chair.  Nearly 350 guests attended the Ball and helped raise more than $1.3 million for cancer research. 


“This year,” said Peter Palandjian, “despite the world’s economic turmoil, we have achieved our ambitious goal.  We come together year, year after year, to show our support and gratitude to an institution that consistently sets the highest standards in the world for research, prevention, and cancer care.”  


Phyllis and Paul Fireman, Patrick Park, and RUSSELECTRIC were grand benefactors. Renee and Robert Belfer, James W. Harpel, Michele and Howard Kessler, and the Palandjian Family were grand patrons of the 19th annual Discovery Ball. Tiffany & Co was also the Corporate Platinum Donor of the Ball.


Joining the Palandjians and Mr. Park were Helaine Allen and Larry Ochstein, Colleen Bain and Shaun O’Hearn, Cynthia and Theodore Berenson, Sandy and Richard Bornstein, Carolyn and David Brodsky, Martha Brown and Jeffrey Libert, Rhoda and David Chase, Nancy and Elliot Comenitz, Doris and Marvin Goldenberg, Abe Gosman, Julie and Amin Khoury, Sandra Krakoff and Martin Philips, Paula and Peter Lunder, Marilyn Mades and Burton Silberstein, Beverly and Herbert Myers, Suzanne and Robert Tomsich, Nassrine and Norman Traverse, Susie and Skippy Weingeroff, and Randi and David Zussman.


The night included a silent auction featuring men’s and women’s Atlas watches donated by Tiffany & Co which were won by Diana and Stephen Lewinstein and Maureen and Bill Goldfarb respectively while Beverly Constantino and Steven Colanero were the winners of the New England Patriots Season Ticket Package. 







A portion of the proceeds from the Discovery Ball help a local organization dedicated to helping children with cancer.
